The Panther of maison Cartier has long been a symbol of the brand but if you want to find out just how long it has been around, we suggest you pay a visit to the La Panthère de Cartier exhibition in Pavilion Kuala Lumpur this weekend (16-17 September 2017).
For fans of the brand or even jewellery for that matter, the exhibition is something that most definitely shouldn’t be missed as for the first time, Cartier has air-flown 28 painstakingly-preserved pieces from their archives in Geneva to Kuala Lumpur. Celebrating more than 150 years of history and craftsmanship, guests will be able to trace the odyssey of the famous panther and get up close with immensely historic pieces through this exhibition spanning the Centre Concourse of Pavilion KL and their double-storey flagship boutique. Here are some of the Heritage highlights that you’ll be able to find exhibited there this weekend:

The watch was is an amalgamation of platinum, pink gold, Rose-cut diamonds, Onyx and a Black Moiré strap while the movement is a round LeCoultre movement.
